april 20th through the 26th
came home from LA on monday. back to school for the kids on tuesday. i washed max's jersey so he could wear it to school. nobody even asked him about it.
tuesday night, madi had practice at silverado. darric and i went. the coach was only there at the very beginning and then some younger guy and one of the girl's dads, dusty, coached the rest of practice. madi informed her teammate that she won't be at the game this weekend either because she's going to disneyland with stuco. darric is trying to talk her into being a setter, but she wants to be an outside hitter as of right now. her and kenzie are all about getting the glory. and madi doesn't want to be kenzie's setter and sit back and watch her be the glory getter.
thursday i went and picked up panda (max's request, he just wanted orange chicken) and went and had lunch with him in the courtyard. it sprinkled on us, just a little bit. after we ate we went inside to the book fair in the library. he picked a minecraft book and a dinosaur poster. yesterday, he had library and bought himself a book then too. a book on lebron james.
max and i went over to grandma + grandpa carter's after school on thursday. he helped with a few chores in the yard and even pulled out a stubborn stump out back.
friday i attempted my very first pound cake. i went and bought the pan from wal-mart that morning. it was a recipe using cream cheese. not sure if i did something wrong or if the recipe was off, but it was more dense than i think it was supposed to be. the flavor wasn't really what i was used to either, so i think i'm going to try a different recipe. we also tried something new for dinner, cheesy party burgers from kevinandamanda.com. they were yummy.
saturday, madison spent the day at disneyland with student council. i spent most of my day organizing old photos, while darric spent most of his day working. he was up at 5:00 am and got home in time to go pick kenzie up from her practice at 3:00. we also got a little rain this afternoon.
sunday, me, darric and max went to look around bass pro shops (that's what we do when we're bored). we got the dogs each a new nylabone chew toy. we thought they would last long like the nylabones we got them. but, we were wrong. joe was able to chew pieces off both of them, it won't be long until they are completely destroyed.
